aobbardbike + hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2015


Cool peak, great views. I followed Dean's advice and used a mtn bike for the road. Was glad I did, but the pedal up is no walk in the park. Steep grades, scree-filled ruts and sand traps make this a challenging climb. It worked me, and I mtn bike 5X/week. One the way back I was thrilled to have the bike- would be a long walk back...

River was flowing ~50cfs, and fording with a bike at that level was a piece of cake.

I did this one on the way back from a trip to the San Rafael area. I got kind of a late start, after 10 am, so I felt a bit rushed the majority of the hike. Not really a good thing on a 21 mile hike. The hike itself was awesome!!, with unbelievable views along the way. I reached the summit in 3 hours 10 minutes. I spent about 10 minutes on top, signed the summit register, soaked in the amazing views and got prepared for the 10+ mile hike back. There were some potential thunder storms building so I hustled down making it back to my truck in 2:46. Around 6 hrs RT. One thing of note... as of 3/23/15 the road is clear to drive to the river crossing. It is a bit tight and sketchy in spots but when I was there, there were 5 trucks including a tundra who had driven all the way to the crossing. There were also fairly fresh Jeep tracks beyond the crossing all the way along the road to where you head off to the summit. I don't know how they got all the way up there.

Just wow. Amazing views. Plenty of isolation. Didn't see anyone for the entire hike.

I finally got back to get this summit. The first time I tried was with Greg and I stopped about 1.5 miles away from the top. This time I hiked with Dean and Andy, and I made it! Awesome hike and all worth it.

You truly earn this one. After over ten miles of hiking in, you get a nice scramble to reach the top, nothing hard but what eats at you as you are sitting on the summit looking down at the highway a couple miles away, is that you have to retrace those over ten miles to get back to your vehicle that you'll be driving on that highway you are looking at from the summit. Did this one with SP member Kadee of SLC and Andy Martin of Tucson. Great company who made this hike "fun".It was pretty hot on the return so cooler weather is best. Carry plenty of water.
